Tilburg is an industrial city but has some royal connotations. King Willem II of the Netherlands (1792-1849) loved Tilburg and indeed also died there. The local football club is named Willem II and they play their matches in the Koning Willem II Stadion

King Willem II also ordered a neo-gothic house. The King never lived there: he died 9 days before the house was ready. In his testament the King destined his house to become a Rijks (State Higher Civic School). Later it became a representative location for the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Tilburg. It is known as "the palace" in Tilburg but it never was. Sadly the once so lush green gardens have become the concrete roof of a giant underground parking and sadly the municipal offices have been glued to the neo gothic building...

The house of Willem II in 1962 (the city has already knibbled large parts of the gardens): picture and picture.

The house of Willem II in 2016. The city has completely destroyed the lush gardens: picture.

King Willem II also owned lots of land surrounding Tilburg, with farms. It was called Koningshoeven (the King's farms), where still Cistercian monks (trappists) brew La Trappe, the local trappist beer: picture. The Abbey is named Koningshoeven.

There is also a statue of Willem II in the centre of Tilburg: picture.

Apparently the concept of the route was leaked to the local press. Terrorist experts claim that this will give people with bad intentions a long time to make preparations.

The Brabants Dagblad claims to have the route and mentioned some (obvious) places but they did not publish a plan of the route in their newspaper. The editor claims they are concerned about the leak but that they do not want to disturb the plans.

The city emphasizes that the plans are still in concept and can and will be changed.

Thanks for the pictures everyone, this is one of my favorite royal families. The girls are getting so big, P.Amalia looks just like her grandmother Princess Beatrix, P.Alexia looks just like Queen Maxima and P.Ariane looks just like King W-A, they are all very beautiful girls.

The reviews of the day were rather positive, even in the left-leaning Volkskrant. The celebrations feel much more 'now' than it did during the previous reign. The choice for one larger city/town seems to work out well: there were 150.000 spectators, more than double the amount that was expected -and that is despite the bad weather predictions. They noted that there were much more older teenagers/young adults than a few years ago.

The entire visit can be seen here:

Lovely that they arrived by royal train. It seems they have been using it more frequently these last years.

From today Queen Máxima's outfit will be exhibited in the textile museum in Tilburg. The designer, Jan Taminiau, was born and raised close to the city. A ncie way to attract some more visitors to the museum.

I was aftraid for a twitterstorm about the physical changes of Princess Amalia, but in the general positive vibe of the royal family in twitterland, it remained calm on that front.
